"Protections for anonymous speech are vital to democratic discourse. Allowing dissenters to shield their identities frees them to express critical, minority views . . . Anonymity is a shield from the tyranny of the majority. . . . to protect unpopular individuals from retaliation . . . at the hand of an intolerant society.
If you have trouble understanding this I'd be happy to dumb it down for you..
Anybody too chicken S,,,#T , to put their names to their convictions or opinions obviously dont have any real belief in freedom of speech . They just use their anonymity to hurl insults make mild threats and troll with out putting any real commitment to their thoughts or opinions. Rory at least has the back bone to support any statement he makes with his name and there for , even if i do or do not agree Rory's post he will always get more respect from me as he is willing to stand by his views unlike the bunch of cowards who try to hide who they are yet have no problem picking at others brave enuff to use their names. Way to go Rory.... i respect the way you stand by your thoughts. Dont let the cowards get ya flustered nobody really cares what they have to say .

its easy to sit behind a computer and scrutinize others for their driving habits, if you have seen the RCMP officers or others on their cell/computer while driving and it bothers you that much drive down to the detatchment and file a complaint against the officer it costs nothing and they would probably appreciate your input. having said that, I would hope I never see you driving around town or elsewhere on your cell ! I for one have no problem with them using these devices while on duty and in a responsible manner while trying to catch the bad guy, its the cost of doing business, whilst some just want to complain about the RCMP. be very careful what you ask for, and always remember from now on people know where YOU stand and i hope YOU uphold the law like the rest of the perfect people out there !

Just wondering, did the driver get a ticket for driving too fast for the road conditions?
What about distracted driving? Was he using his cell phone (as I see police officers using while driving often) or the computer?
